Why Choose A Solar PPA?
Solar is a great opportunity for municipalities to adopt clean energy, given the broad array of facilities and services offered by governments. Solar can offset loads for plant facilities in the daytime and provide net-metered power for the street lights at night.
With term lengths of up to 30 years, and the ability to purchase the system or renew afterwards, a PPA provides instant savings to the municipality without the upfront cost of direct purchase or the recurring costs of a lease. Day 1 savings can ease a budget shortfall or allow for more investment in the community.
A solar PPA also offers municipalities a way to take advantage of federal tax programs that are not available ordinarily, as they are not the system owners. This puts towns and cities on the same playing field as businesses and homeowners, as SCF is able to monetize tax benefits, resulting in low PPA energy prices.
While other options such as wind are out there, the ease of installation, long lasting equipment and lack of moving parts makes solar the clear environmental winner. Rather than purchase carbon credits or other methods of fossil fuel mitigation, building a solar array sends a powerful message to constituents and voters that their municipality is actively investing in the future.

Benefits of Solar for Municipalities & Government:
This system is coupled with the smaller, 16kW roof mounted array at the Community Center. These are the fourth and fifth installations SCF has completed in partnership with the City of San Joaquin, totaling over 300kW. The portfolio will secure San Joaquin’s energy supply while also providing energy savings immediately.
